Whether this is going to be a permanent fixture, or whether it’s a temporary situation, it’s still all good and well that you have a sturdy fence to shield you and your staff or event players, or product displays. Say now that the crowd grows. The event becomes more lively. Crowds grow excited, but hopefully not restless. Even so, you, in the responsible position that you are in, have to take a realistic view.
Things could get out of hand. The crowd could grow restless. It may not be your doing and it may be some or another outside event that sets them off. The crowd grows, and it grows restless. The metal barriers that you have imposed upon them proves to be ineffective. See how quickly the onrush tramples and crushes those previously formidable barriers. All good and well to have a sturdy fence surrounding resurrected.
You still need more. You most certainly do need professionally managed crowd control fencing from start to finish. Right at the beginning, you are in touch with a professional consultant. This consultant could act as your event or risk manager. He will have professional experience of managing big events that attract large crowds. He will also be quite familiar with all its associated safety and security risks.
And it is his job to eliminate as many of them as possible. Prior to the event, he assesses the likely situation. He assesses your physical surroundings. On the site, he is in a good position to recommend what type of fencing construction is required. Further to that, he is more than likely going to recommend the utilization of a privately managed and manned security detail. And the public law enforcement agencies will also be required to have an involvement.
